Thursday Nerdsday

Happy Thursday!!

Today I will be reviewing...Drum roll, please!........

by Kiersten White

5 out of 5 stars

Hardcover, 335 pages
Published August 31st 2010 by HarperTeen

Synopsis from Goodreads: "Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal."

I give PARANORMALCY 10 out of 5 stars!!! mean I can't do that? *pout* I guess she will have to settle for 5 big, fat and happy stars.

PARANORMALCY was written in first person, which just made it loads of fun. (Evie is hilarious.)

This book was one of the best books I have read in a very long time. I laughed out loud, I almost cried. Almost. But best of all, it had layers of emotions. There was this dark, scariness that pulled all the way through the book. Evie could never cover it with her beautiful sense of humor. And lets be serious, this book is ACTION PACKED! Within the first 20 pages she has already kicked 2 butts! I mean, HOW COOL IS THAT!?! And she's funny about it?! WHAT! You need to stop whatever it is that you are reading right now, and go get this book. Like, now. Seriously. I said stop reading. You can finish reading this post once you are back from getting PARANORMALCY....and a loaf of bread...(seriously, if you are a chicken like me, get some bread) *Taps foot and waits*

WELCOME BACK!! Ok, so Evie is funny and wonderful and the book is very dark if you look under the skin...ok it may just be because I am a big fat chicken, but it was scary to me. It ends well, still at a cliff where you would really love to continue reading, but where you are happy that if it had to end, it ended there. I HIGHLY recommend this book, and her blog...go watch Kiersten Write...WRITE, KIERSTEN, WRITE! (And for the authors out there, Kiersten posts some really great tips about the writing world...)

So, I know it published a while back...does anyone else have a different opinion about the book? Let's play nice, but if you have a different opinion, it may be helpful for others to see it, so feel free to comment. :)

And, rememeber everyone...

HAHAHA!! I TOTALLY have that sign in my living room! (yes guys, thats a picture from inside my house) I love that sign.

Well, consider your review a success because now I want to read it. I will definitely add it to my E-reader Challenge for 2011.

Thanks for the kind comment on my x-mas cookie post. I have more to make tonight. Pray for me. Seriously. I may suffer from severe PTCSD (Post Traumatic Cookie Stress Disorder) by the time it's all over.

I can't stop saying Thursday Nerdsday ever since I found your blog. I think we need a meme/feature around that theme because I really needed something to post yesterday. :D

Small Review said...

Haha, I love your review. I instructed people to go and read the first page in my review. :) This book is so awesome. I also got that dark, scary vibe underneath the hilarious parts. I think that's one of the things I liked so much about this book. Kiersten wrote a book that is so light and fluffy and fun, but it's also serious and scary at the same time. I love it!

Are you team Lend or team Reth?

Jessica K. said...
